B&M creates 70 jobs in Swansea with new store

B&M Swansea

There was plenty of excitement in Swansea today as B&M opened its new store on Parc Tawe Retail Park.

The addition to B&M's portfolio in the region comes as a huge boost to the local economy, creating 70 jobs for people from the area.

Visitors to the store will be able to browse a wide range of branded and own label goods, including toys, groceries, health & beauty and pet ranges.

As part of the opening celebrations, B&M employees invited local charity, Ty Olwen Trust, to be their VIP for the day. Local Mayor, Cllr Philip Downing and his wife, Lilian, were also in attendance.

The charity aims to help people suffering from cancer and life-limiting diseases by providing amenities, equipment, services and facilities not normally provided by the NHS. They also support the family and dependents of patients who are facing financial circumstances as a result of these illnesses.

The foundation were handed £250 worth of vouchers to spend in-store as a thank you for their hard work in the community.

The store manager, Helen Buckley, said: “The team from Ty Olwen Trust really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do.

“We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”

She also commented: The new team have been working really hard to get the store ready for opening day and we can’t wait to get the doors open Thursday and show customers their new B&M Swansea.”
